Are psychotherapy and psychotropic medications secular, humanistic answers to spiritual problems?

The devil uses every weapon in his arsenal to disrupt God’s plan for our lives.

The devil uses every weapon in his arsenal to disrupt God’s plan for our lives. We should use every weapon available to come against him. I liken it to the armed forces going to fight a war: the Army, the Navy and the Air Force. I see the Army as medication. It is in the trenches to do physical battle. As a psychiatrist, I am a general in the Army. I direct the forces and arm the nerve endings with Zoloft ™, or Paxil ™ or Seroquil ™—whatever is the best weapon to assist the physical body to return to normal. The Navy is counseling. It is more fluid and performs a different, but equally necessary function. The Air Force is prayer and scripture. I call it the Heir Force, because we are heirs of salvation. When we pray and speak the Word of God, we are performing air strikes on the devil.

You wouldn’t go to war with only one branch of the service. All three are essential. Why limit God by using only one weapon for recovery, when more are available?

Chaplain Anderson: This is a difficult situation for many born again believers. We believe God for healing, yet we trust a doctor’s diagnosis and take medication. If you have angina, you take nitroglycerin. Taking medication for mental illness is just like taking medicine for physical illness. Using medication and therapy does not negate God’s healing power, nor is it a sign of spiritual failure.
